    Here's the pros and cons of each one.

    Sixth form 1 (proper sixth form):
    + it's a tiny bit closer, easy to bike there and back
    + 100% pass rate (have to leave after first year if you don't pass), due to pastoral and personal support as it's very small
    + classes are smaller so more support there
    - as it's apart of another secondary school and is small, about 50% of the students will be from that school so will be harder to make friends
    - possibly a bad timetable as the teachers work at the 6th form and school (which isn't much of an issue since i can bike 10 mins home)

    Sixth form 2 (college sixth form):
    + prepares me for university a lot more as they don't give as much support
    + more people so can socialise and make a bigger friendship group and will make me a lot more comfortable since people are in the same boat
    - don't push you as much since it's bigger
    - generally slightly worse grades


    I was sure on number 2 this morning however since I got my results, nearly all A*'s, I'm now leaning towards 1 because after all I'm here to get the best grades possible for university. Any advice appreciated, thanks.
